I have never heard of a high school with this caliper of teaching staff under one roof. I had the destinct pleasure of watching them in action when my daughter attended the school. I watched her soak up every bit of amazing cirriculum the amazing staff had to give her. I watched her mature with confidence like never before. The staff totally prepared her for a major university, with unbelievable knowledge and confidence when she graduated the 12th grade. As a parent, I could not have asked for a better education and wonderful Jewish experiences all through high school. She is now in law school, and wishes she could come back to high school to do it all over again! What speaks better than that? Thank you again to all the wonderful staff!

New Community Jewish High School is a very special place for kids to learn and grow. The emphasis is on creating "A+ human beings," not merely robots who perform well on the SAT's. The classes are small and I feel like the teachers are amazing, wonderful, brilliant and very caring of my child. This is my second child I am putting through this school, so I speak from experience. It is a big financial commitment, but I know it's an investment in my son's future. My daughter, who graduated a year ago and is now in college, will always have a warm connection to this school, as will I.

This is a small school with high standards. Teaching values are priority in this school. Extra sweet and professional office staff. It is not as diverse as should be.

A wonderful school! I especially appreciate the small classes and the way that students are placed in classes that match their interests and abilities. There are plenty of clubs and activities and most of the teachers are excellent.

I am a NCJHS graduate and now that I am in college I realize how underprepared I was, especially in science and math. This school stresses morals and values, but most of my classmates had emotional issues. There are a lot of kids with special ed needs too. I begged my parents to send me to public school and now they are sorry that they did not because they feel we wasted my time and their money. Although the school pretends to care and to stress community, that basically works only for big donors or board members. The staff has no idea how to deal with kids and the administration is blind to all of the behavior and issues of the students. Go anywhere else.

Someone else wrote this last year and it seemed perfect to repost: "NCJHS is a caring school that teaches kids to think for themselves. It's small enough for everyone to know each other and large enough to have a feeling of a real high school experience. Great school trips too." I would just add that Dr. Bruce Powell is amazing and provides a top down leadership that supports his teachers in the above endeavor!
